Title: Internet gaming disorder, harm, and loot box involvement
Author: Carey, Patrick
Issue Date: 2020
School/Discipline: School of Psychology
Abstract: The specific nature of harm and functional impairment in the context of Internet gaming disorder (IGD) has received limited attention. Assessing for widespread taxonomic harms is now commonplace in the study of problem gambling and other addictions. Given key risks in engaging in video gaming (namely, the acquisition of Internet Gaming Disorder and engaging in gambling-like activities), it is reasonable to suggest that a study of widespread gaming-related harms should be conducted. The review will propose that gambling-related harm measurement could be adapted for the measurement of gaming-related harm, to specifically a) identify and classify the harms differing between gamers with and without IGD, and b) identify financial harms associated with gambling-like gaming activities.
